Abstract

This report describes R/V Poseidon Cruise 314, designed to repeat the hydrographic section
from Scotland to Rockall, called the Ellett Line, and its extension to Iceland.
73 stations were worked with CTD and lowered ADCP and sampled for chemical (macronutrients
and dissolved oxygen) and biological (chlorophyll a) analyses. Additional samples
for analysis of dissolved iron, pigments and plankton physiology were taken at a few selected
sites. Underway measurements of depth, meteorology, surface water properties and currents were made. The weather during the cruise was good, with no time lost to the elements and more than the expected number of stations worked. Conversely data logging and processing suffered from so many problems that it was not possible to edit and calibrate the data during the cruise.
